An approach to expert assessment in software engineering
- 50 Downloads
An approach is proposed to the solution of formalized problems of assessment of the activity that produces and maintains software systems (SSs). Such assessment is realized by using expertises that form a new assessment process adequate to the activity needs and specifics with an environment common to the expertises. The following mathematical apparatus is elaborated for expertises: a framework (target functions and executing mechanisms), a model and methods (formalisms for improving the quality and reusing the results of expertises) of an assessment process, and tools for integrating the apparatus into software development management processes. The approach is theoretically justified. Prospects of developing the proposed approach are described.
